Tilda Swinton: Acting career was a 'major mistake'

Is Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton over her job?

According to UK paper the Express, the 50-year-old actress says that despite an Academy Award (for “Michael Clayton”) and rave reviews, she’s been trying to get out of the movie business.

"I'm not really interested in acting,” Swinton reportedly told the paper. “I've given up waiting for an epiphany of interest to strike. Acting is a red herring and a major mistake and I'm still trying to get back on track. Every time I’m in a film I’m determined it’s the last I’m in then I’ll fall into a conversation with someone and we’ll cook up a new scheme. Basically it’s gone on for 20 years but I’m hoping to pull it to a close shortly.”

Derek Zoolander debuts a new look on 'SNL'

What will Derek Zoolander be for Halloween?

Trick question! Such a good-looking male model wouldn’t wear a costume. As we discovered when Ben Stiller brought the character from 2001’s “Zoolander” back to life during this weekend's “Saturday Night Live," Derek will be wearing just his new look, "Cold Coffee."

Believe it or not, it looks vaguely reminiscent of Blue Steel and Magnum.

Arnold Schwarzenegger unveils statue of himself

In front of hundreds of fans and teenage son Patrick, Arnold Schwarzenegger unveiled a giant, buff bronze statue of himself on Friday, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Schwarzenegger’s new monument is one of three self-commissioned bronze statues. The statue depicts the former governor as a young bodybuilder, and stands at the star’s new museum in his hometown of Thal, Austria.

"For me, this is not only a museum," Schwarzenegger said. "It is also a symbol of will ... everyone has a chance."

'Breaking Bad' season ends with finesse

Wow. Season 4 of “Breaking Bad” is in the books.

This run, more than the others, favored finesse over fireworks. The meticulous structure led to a gradual swell of tension that crept up like flood waters. By the end of last night’s episode, the water was up to chin level. And in a matter of minutes, it all receded. Sweet relief.

In fact, I began typing “for once, they didn’t end the season on a bleak note.” Of course I typed too soon, for after flood waters recede, there’s always a path of destruction left behind. Last night was no different, as the final shot revealed the utter obliteration of Walt’s moral compass.

Did former Weezer bassist predict his death?

Former Weezer band member turned artist Mikey Welsh's death Saturday at the age of 40 was a shock to many fans.

But People magazine reports the bassist eerily tweeted the time and place of his death two weeks prior.

According to the publication, Welsh wrote a note on the social networking site on September 26 which read, "dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today." He then added a second tweet that said "correction – the weekend after next."

According to Chicago police, Welsh was found "unresponsive and not breathing" on Saturday at the Raffaello Hotel. He was reportedly in town to see his former band perform Sunday at Chicago's RiotFest. As of Monday, a cause of death had not yet been determined.

'How to Make It in America': In or out?

Last night's episode of "How to Make It" didn't have the same pace as the premiere, but it was a nice segue to the storylines (and drama) ahead.

We left off with Ben and Cam being approached by Andy, a sales rep who wants to help get Crisp into every store in NYC. During their meeting, the fellas aren’t too sure about Mr. Andy, an up and comer trying to make a name for himself.

While Andy’s "let’s build a brand and empire together" sentiment is honorable, this is the generation of instant, not delayed, gratification.
